Seppic brings together its range of active ingredients under one single brand: wesource

As it prepares to celebrate its 75th anniversary, the supplier of cosmetic ingredients is creating wesource, a new umbrella brand bringing together its portfolio of green ingredients and botanical and marine-derived cosmetic actives. A new range of services dedicated to its customers will complete the offer of the new entity.

The brand’s mission is to embody the richness and diversity of Seppic’s natural cosmetic actives. Thanks to the take over of BiotechMarine in 2013, the subsidiary of the Air Liquide Group has expanded its range of botanically-derived active ingredients with new ingredients derived from the extraction of algae or marine plants. With the acquisition of Serdex in 2017, Seppic added new ranges of botanically extracted ingredients to its portfolio. This latter acquisition also allowed the group to strengthen its presence in the global market of natural active ingredients for the personal care industry.

Support to clients around the world

With this brand, Seppic aims to give its customers a better understanding and consistency of its diversified active ingredients portfolio. The company also reinforces its support to customers with new dedicated services and technical, scientific and biological expertise. The range of new services will include exclusive partnerships, inspirational marketing, masterclasses on skin biology, etc.

"By observing how nature works, we are opening up new horizons on our three pillars: plant chemistry, marine biotechnology and botanical extraction. Our range of actives derived from these different technologies already includes 100 different actives, allowing us to address the various needs of customers on different continents. That’s what wesource represents,” commented Lea Seidenbinder, head of the wesource brand at Seppic.
